What a milestone day!

What's almost as good as getting your ears pierced? Losing your first tooth! And, all in the same day!!

Mei Xiao Mei spent the first 6 1/2 years of her life reaching a few milestones and missing some. I doubt there was anyone cheering her on when she first crawled or walked. We missed those precious moments with her, but we have got to see firsthand her transformation into a little girl. We've shared many milestones with her in these 7 months such as pedaling a bicycle and swinging for the first time. It's been more than just marking things off a list because we have seen the world through her eyes as we watched her experience each new thing. And, believe me, everything has been new!! Friday is her 7th birthday, and Saturday she will celebrate her very first birthday with a big party!

What a BIG day! All just in time for that special birthday!
What a sweet post about the 'firsts' you've been able to experience with that beautiful little girl! ;)

Now that's a BIG day! I read your post on RQ and wanted to say I appreciated what you had to say. Thanks for sharing your perspective.

Our daughter is now four and doing great, but her first year of life required a strong will and determination.
